Print Recipe




  • 6-8 medium zucchini
  • ½ cup brown sweetener
  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg ground
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger ground
  • ¼ teaspoon all spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Egg wash

  • 1 small egg beaten


Make the pastry

  • Place the almond & coconut flour, butter, cream cheese, xanthan gum, egg, salt and into a food processor and blend until you have a soft mixture.
  • Scrap the mixture out of the processor and form into a ball.
  • Cover the dough ball with parchment paper and place in the fridge. Chill for 45 minutes.

Make the filling

  • Slice off top and bottom of zucchini and peel.
  • Cut into thin slices about ¼ inch thick.
  • Melt the butter in a large shallow pan on a medium heat.
  • Add the spices, salt, vanilla extract and lemon juice and stir until mixed.
  • Toss the zucchini slices into the pan and mix into the spiced butter.
  • Cover and cook on a low heat for 15 minutes.
  • Add the xanthan gum and cook for a further 15 minutes without the lid. Stir occasionally to ensure that the sauce and zucchini do not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Remove from the heat and allow to cool.

Pie Assembly

  • Remove the pastry dough from the fridge and cut the ball into two pieces (one for the base, the other for the pie lid)
  • Roll out one of the dough balls in between two sheets of parchment paper to a size to cover an 8-inch pie dish. Begin rolling out from the center of the dough.
  • Gently place the pastry in the bottom of a pie dish.
  • Spoon the filling into the pie dish and place in the fridge to keep cool whilst you prepare the top of the pie.
  • Roll out the 2nd piece of pastry to make a lid. You could roll it out as a pastry lid or use a cookie cutter to make shapes. Perhaps cut the rolled pastry into lengths to make a lattice.
  • Place the pie crust/cut shapes/lattice on the top of the pie.
  • Brush the top with egg wash.
  • Bake at 180C/375F degrees for 45 – 50 minutes until the crust is golden.
  • Check the pie after 25 minutes and if the edges are becoming too dark, cover the edges with foil to prevent burning.
  • Once cooked, remove the pie from the oven and allow to cool before slicing.
  • Serve with whipped cream or low carb vanilla ice cream.
